We spent there more than 7 hours, there's something for everybody in the family. There are a lot of playgrounds, rides, walks, even a hanging bridge between trees. It's an expensive trip, but it worth it. You have to pay extra for visit to the castle. Personally I don't like stuffed dead animals and there's a lot of them inside,... More

this is one of the best places to visit in Denmark if you have kids. We first went to Legoland and then to Odense. Spent a whole day at this fantastic castle just south of the city. The castle has something for everyone. Our four years old son just loved the numerous playgrounds and the Firetrucks at the Falck museum,... More

We went to the antique vehicles museum first - there were lot of motorcycles, classic cars and bikes in the olden days. After the museum we went to the Segway Knight Course Challenge. It was a great experience, and we received certificates. We went into the castle, it still maintained a lot of original furniture and paintings. Lastly, we went... More

This was a real positive suprise, the castle was nice but actually only a small part of the entire location, the gardens are very big and beautiful with sculpted trees and roaming peacocks, and there is a huge museum of motorcycles and cars that was very nice to see, much better than the usual displays you see at som attractions....

A nice place to visit for a walk among veteran cars, planes, mopeds. It all costs 180kr to see the sights, and you can pay an extra 30kr to see the castle aswell. It's kinda expensive compaired toother attractions in denmark. But it's a nice place to visit if you wanna see some spectacular gardens.

A magic place to visit, both with and without chikdren.!.. So many activities, one day isn't enough... Don't miss this fabulous place...Great outdoor activities - tree-top walk, maze, segway, beautiful garden and forest.... Fantastic, huge playground... And the castle itself is wonderful, with its twists and turrets... Can't wait to go back.!

If you are on the island of Funen (Fyn), then Egeskov is worth a 3 hour visit. It is south of Odense and is still privately owned. Although the entry fee is expensive (we bought the gardens/collections ticket - without castle), it was probably our favorite place in Denmark: 1) the gardens are large, varied and beautiful 2) the hedge...

Don't miss this - a true castle as one would imagine it! Spires, drawbridge, moat, pond, ducks, gardens, the whole shebang. You can spend the day here, and should! Great for kids - but something for everyone! The grounds are vast and include a large maze, a treetop skywalk, jousting with Segways, walking on stilts, a playground, a car, bike... More

Nice and relaxing athmosphere. Lots of play-areas for the children, wonderful gardens, nice Italian food at the Cafe, interesting veteran cars at the museum, and last but not least the amazing Castle. You need an entire day to experience it all.

I was here for Tori Amos - she held the first ever concert on the castle grounds. The meet and greet took place in the banquet hall of the castle, which is the only room I saw - wasn't impressed, on the contrary - a tiger hide among plenty other dead animals mounted on the walls is not my idea...
